Tell Congress not to cut corners on children's health care!

Tell Congress not to cut corners on children's health care!

More than a million children have been born without health insurance since the start of the 110th Congress - and the number grows daily. New Medicaid and SCHIP regulations threaten essential healthcare for:

  • Low-income children and families

  • Children with disabilities

Urge your elected representatives to put a hold on the new regulations and increase federal funding for Medicaid by supporting H.R. 5613, H.R. 5268 and S. 2819.

Tell Congress to provide healthcare for more children, not less.

Tell Your Senator: Vote "Yes" on the Fair Pay Restoration Act

This week, the Senate will vote on the Fair Pay Restoration Act (S. 1843), which reaffirms civil rights threatened by a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Ledbetter v. Goodyear. This ruling:

  • Makes it virtually impossible for women facing pay discrimination to take legal action against their employers.

  • Threatens justice for anyone discriminated against on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, or age.

The House has already passed a bill that remedies the problems caused by the Court's ruling. Now, the ball is in the Senate's court.
